WORDS

HEAVEN IS FOR WIMPS

If you let go, where would you go to?
I thought you knew,
I thought you might have guessed it.
'cause Heaven is for wimps. Heaven is for wimps.
I thought you knew;
I thought you might have guessed it.
It's not your movie, not your show, anymore.
I thought you might have guessed it.

You think she's hot, but don't park your car in the wrong lot.
She's not buyin' what you're sellin' anymore,
she's got the pedal floored,
it's gonna get crazy, right now...
I think you're goin' down
with the moon into the ocean,
falling asleep...

HANGOVER (the Goth Song)

I saw you standin' in line
For so long, standing in line
With your watch ticking in time
&&overflowing your mind
hey! don't you know, it's a young world
and filled with time
filled with time
There are old rules
But none of them are ours
'Cause this is an old old world
And it's running down
And it's filled with flies and clowns
And it's filled with toys
toys and twisted joys
twisted joys
hey! don't you know
it's a dumb world
it's running down
slow down
stay in bed
that's okay

ALL GIRLS SURVIVE

& when she's driving thru the snow
& creatures clamber thru her hair
you sit alone
and think you know
you'll think she's dead
but don't despair
cause some girls drown
& some get hard
some slow down
& some retard
it's hard to lose
and so many do
but now all girls
survive like you

the motels flicker in their flies
& tattoo daggers they love their moms
& chainsaw killers brutalize
but for now this world is never wrong
cause some give head
& some get wed
some pray for jesus
& some for bread
it's hard to live
and so many die
but now all girls
everywhere survive

TREES

I'm goin' up in the trees
and I'm never comin' down
ever again
I'm goin' up in the trees
and I'm never gonna touch the ground
ever again
but I'm gonna climb
as high as I have to
I'm gonna climb
as high as I have to
to forget, oh...
You're so beautiful, oh...
I'm goin' up in the trees
and I'm never gonna see your face
ever again
I'm goin' up in the trees
and I'm never gonna kiss your lips
ever again
I'm gonna climb
as high as I have to
I'm gonna climb
as high as I have to
to forget, oh...
you're so beautiful, oh...
and I'm goin' up in the trees.

MERMAN FIREBOMBER

merman firebomber
shadows shock the moon
is explicitly denied
while your life and wife are white
the sun goes down
before it goes down
please remember
everything goes down
once in a while

frightened by the sunside
climbs into the trees
distracted by the leaves
swan dives into the sea
still wired, though mired
yet your life is much admired
you'll elicit some applause
for escapes from razor claws
the moon goes down
before you go down
try to remember
everyone goes down
once in a while.

BOOBY CITY

i'm drivin' thru to booby city
where the boobies are so pretty
i'm gettin down on lubricity
i'm a nylon-bloated kitty
but i'm a clean machine on my routine
needing surgical steel serene queen

i'm drivin thru to my university
no more no more ignorant perversity
i want a high-class babe in a tube top
i want some postmodern ass for my blow pop
cause i got a motor in my brain and its running
it's running got a motor in my brain and it's running
it's running cause I'm a biotech wreck with an engineered neck
and i'm a nuclear fuck, and my life is stuck
and i got a motor in my brain and it's running it's running
got a motor in m brain and it's running it's running
got a motor in my brain and it's running running running away

MOON BLUES

moon blues
astrological news
your gold stuff
obsolete
sink the brash
slime for cash
no arcs of wind
shine clear

moon blues
pulsar cues
your orbit tows
seer's curse
water blurs
lunar spur
so haunt remains
&coins rain from the sky

I KNOW

well i know
you got a terrified soul
it's a burning car on a bed of coal
and I watch the rattlesnake slide into its hole
you've got devils burning in your shimmy and kick
and the liquor & stick
only makes you sick
but you're too young to want to die.

well i know
your tongue burns like fire
it's an empire state building elevator wire
and the crows land upon your slippery neck
now don't you forget
i'm your ice cold bed
i'm your red moonset
but you're too dumb to want to die.

LIQUID MONSTER

don't wanna be like my dad
don't wanna die inside my head
don't particularly like being sad
or spend my time feeling bad
so keep that liquid monster away from me.
don't wanna give up on love
or pray all day to a ghost above
& I know things are gonna get rough
perhaps we could be strong enough
but keep that liquid monster away from me.
keep that liquid monster away from me.

PARANOIA IS YOUR FRIEND

all the dogs are barking
all the cars are parking
I don't care
I don't care at all now
people kill each other
just to prove they're there
but I'm not there
so I don't care why should I
once you told me that the things worth keeping
were not visible, visible
once you told me but I don't believe it is that
paranoia is your friend
your friend
your friend
